I had a very special day yesterday with the gals at lunch! It was so good to see everyone! I had an amazing cup of Clam Chowder and I had a turkey, bacon avocado sandwich that stuffed me to the brim!
I wanted to share some numbers with you today. When I got home last night, in the mail was my explanation of benefits for the chemo treatments I had. The cost of my first chemo treatment was $43,260! The insurance company only allows them to charge $21,963.72. This is a write off of $21,296.28! My second day of treatment was $20,801, with the allowable amount being $10,565.47. The write off amount on this day is $8,485.47. So the total for two chemo treatments $64,061! The write off is $30,453.75! Is your jaw on the ground?
Now the medical center where I have this done is a “non-profit” organization. How do they stay non-profit? By the write-off amounts! After the write off, they net $24,052.75 which pays for salaries and overhead costs. And at the end of the day their bottom line is zero!
I just wanted to share this with you today! So what are you up to today? I have to make a trip to town this morning to pick up stuff for lunch as our yard helper will be with us today and I usually feed him and my husband lunch! When I get home, I am going back to work on the second piece of yard art!
Whatever you do today, enjoy the day and I hope that you too will feel full of life!
My best to you – Hugs and be well!
